It's taken me awhile to get this post out, I apologize! I've been at my parents house this past week and their computer is "toast" (as my dad would say!). My dad and younger sister went to Arizona to hike the Grand Canyon with my Grandpa. They had a great time and I think they walked away with a lot of fun memories. I stayed with my mom while they were gone, so I didn't have access to a computer. But, Carley and I had a fun week with Mimi.
Carley had her birthday party a couple of weekends ago, on April 25th. It was a little party with mostly family (shout out to Ashley and Josh!:)) Some family/friends that really wanted to be there weren't able to make it, but we still had a great time. Carley was also really sick, but she made it through her party and put on a good show when the time came. She actually got sick on her birthday and had her first fever. I felt really bad for her and it took her about a week to get over it completely. All this to say that it was a good time and she destroyed her birthday cake and got some really great presents. She also got a serious bath afterwards. :)
Nanny and Aunt Laurie weren't able to make it to Carley's party and we really missed them being there. Lindy's dad (Dave Lunceford) has been sick with Alzheimer's for years, and it's really started to take a major toll on him. He's now in a home and he's on hospice care. Lindy's been spending a lot of time up there recently and the family's been staying really close to him. Please keep him and the family in your prayers.
Logan and I are headed over to San Antonio this weekend. We're leaving Carley with my parents. It will be the first time she's been without us overnight. This is the only weekend we could find to go and it's doubling as our Anniversary/house hunting trip. Logan will be gone in June, so we just decided to take this trip for ourselves and find a place to live while we're there. We're really excited and we know we're leaving Carley in good hands.
In case I haven't informed some of you, we decided to name our baby boy Joshua Daniel, after both of our dad's. We figure he has a pretty good start in life being named after two of our favorite men.
That's all the news for now! Hope everyone's doing well. We love you all!
